Lorde Turned Down The Opportunity To Get Prismatic With Katy Perry On Tour! Great Move Or Huge Mistake?? U Decide!

Lordy, lordy, Lorde

We cannot believe this 17-year-old songstress nixed the opportunity to head out on tour with Katy Perry!

The Royals singer was offered a place on Miz Perry's Prismatic World Tour in 2014 - but because she wanted to be headliner and hated the idea of working for another artist, she turned that shizzz down!

Even though the Grammy winner is relatively new to the scene, she told KIIS 1065's The Kyle & Jackie O Show she'd rather establish herself and be independent:

"I think… in the really early stages of an artist's career it's important for them to establish themselves for themselves… I'm just basically really stubborn and I want to be really independent. So I want to be headlining my own shows instead of supporting someone else. Which I think is fair enough."


We know Lorde is feminist fab, but was not touring with mega-celeb KP the right choice for her budding career?!

U Decide!

    Re: Carpet Munchers I.N.C – I totally agree. KP is definitely on a downward spiral!! Good move for Lorde, I think.

    I personally feel like it was a mistake to turn down an opening spot on Katy's Prismatic World Tour. While she can sell out smaller venues on her own, Lorde is not an arena headlining act… yet. Opening for Katy would have been much more live exposure and probably a boost in album sales. I don't think Lorde will be going away any time soon, but opening for Katy would have kept her relevant and in spotlight all year long and only helped her career.

    Re: IWannaBeLikePerez – Lorde's booking agent did an interview the other day. They are not looking to make her an arena act yet. They are moving her slowly into that so that she grows over time and does not burn her "star" out quickly. They want her around for a long time. She sold out smaller venues for 3-4 day shows rapidly. It was nothing for a 6,000 capacity hall to sell out ASAP in the US for Lorde. Her music is not like KP's. KP is bubble gum pop. Lorde's is far from that. Their music is not a good mix.

    Re: Free from idiots – STYLE? WHAT style does Kim K have???? I would rather have talent over style anyway. Kim K has no talent and very little "style". Have you actually Looked at how she dresses? Like a stuffed pork sausage spilling out of the casing?

    When she says Headlining does she expect to do arenas based upon one big hit song? Or is she going to smaller venues? I dont think this girl is going to fill up Madison Sq Garden just yet.

    Good lorde respects herself unlike katy.

    I think its important to understand that what Lorde supposedly said is not the entire truth. Im not a huge fan of Lorde but it's not fair to only show part of one interview. In another, earlier interview, she discussed how a huge world tour at this stage would be too much pressure…and how she wants to keep her own identity.

    I dig KP, and I'm stoked to see her career going the way it is. Despite what some of the other comments on here would ask you to believe, I believe KP is doing things right and her career is headed in the right direction. She seems to have her head on her shoulders more than most.

    That said, Lorde is going to re-write the rules of pop stardom. The irony in hearing her music on pop radio, sandwiched between two songs that it rails against, is uncanny. She's a different breed for sure, and I think she need not headline for anyone. It isn't about selling our massive arenas for this girl. It's about expressing her feelings through her music and sharing it with her fans. That type of deal is better suited for intimate venues anyway. Right move, and both artists will be just fine.

    even katy perrys lesbians are ugly who the fuck wants money fame and talent to live such poor quality of life ??
    Get Real !

    I think she made a huge mistake. If you wanna do it on your own that is one thing, you can be an opener for half of the tour then go out on your own because that way, you are getting yourself out there and then ppl will see if she is even good live (some people just arent!) so yes huge, huge mistake for her! especially because I use to love her, but her being overplayed so much has now made me hate her and I would NOT pay to go see her but would not mind her as an opener…Got to pay your dues girl!

    Re: jessica h – Lordy she's grammy winner she doesn't need kp
    is her that needs lordy
    kp wants to use her clean image
    to make her show full on success but
    KP looks like britney 2.0 can't sing live fiascos here and there
    and she looks like she's got mental issues and needs therapy
    no one who's respected by the recording academy
    with bright future and grammy
    wants to be seeing next to that train wreck call KP
